Alligator Collision Kills Mom, 2 Kids on I-95 in SC

Alligator Collision Kills Mom, 2 Kids on I-95 in SC

A mother and her two young children died in a fiery crash early Monday morning after striking an alligator that had crawled onto an interstate in SC, authorities said. The driver then ran off the left side of the road - into the median - and struck a tree.

Amber Stanley, 24, was driving along I-95 in Orangeburg County on Monday with her 4-year-old son, Jack, and 2-year-old daughter, Autumn, when their vehicle hit an alligator crossing the northbound lanes.

Investigators say an SUV was traveling north when it hit an alligator crossing the road.




"When I landed in Atlanta, I couldn't get a hold of her", Stanley said. "I'll go, 'That's Amber.' And I know it's not", he continued. The husband, Josh, said he was in Pennsylvania for work at the time of this crash.

According to Action News Jax in Jacksonville, FL, Josh Stanley, now the sole survivor of his family, said he was working out of town as his wife and two children traveled through SC. "I'll be walking round and that I'll only, for example, watch out something from this corner of my eye, I move, "that& 's Amber, ' also that I understand it's maybe not, however, it's only first thing my brain goes to. I'm still kind of processing it though", he said". Josh Stanley explained his spouse loved going to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and he'd like to organize a clerk there because of his wife and kids.
